GB men’s Head Coach Ricardo Vasconcelos has announced his long squad for the training camp on 28-29 January in Nottingham.

The 28-man squad features a number of Under-21 players as GB seeks to field a young team for the IHF Emerging Nations Championship next June in Bulgaria. The squad will eventually be cut down to the 14 players allowed for the Emerging Nations Championship - which is expected to be restricted to Under-24 players, with three over-age players allowed.

Commenting on his selection Vasconcelos said "We feel this is a strong list where we are able to, as requested, focus on the future without disregarding the present and it's valuable impact and influence. This larger than usual pool of athletes is, in our view, testament to the work from the clubs and coaches that were part of those athletes development. Looking at the list, we will have a really hard work on choosing the last 14 and that is a great position to be at as coaches. We are keen to get the boys together and start working."
